Thnx in advance.
That info is mixed into the giant thread on the topic:
This is guide to a subset some of the posts on the long thread. See these posts on that thread, and then take a look at your car:
Post 23 has a TSB for the Avilon with the same engine. That technical service bulletin is not a recall, but identifies a spot to check when looking for an engine oil leak. In the event of a leak, it does not specify that the replacement part differs from the original. https://rav4world.com/forums/viewtopi...=asc&&start=22

Page 3 Post #36 shows the new hose with engine cover off, and Post 39 show newer metal tube with cover still in place. https://rav4world.com/forums/viewtopi...=asc&&start=35
Page 5 Post: #82 says the new part is "installed in all of the RAV4s Limited V6s on 04/2008 and later is metal and the part number is 15772-31030. That date would seem to apply to build dates ofq Base and Sport too, based on later posts.
Page 9 Post: #134 has good info including a nice parts comparison out of the car. https://rav4world.com/forums/viewtopi...asc&&start=133
Post #336 endorses post 134 and adds some tips for doing the change.
15772-31030 is the all metal tube. Post #82 was first with that number. It was confirmed in other postings including #228. Post 82 stated # 15707-31030 is a part number with the rubber connection. Some posts have stated that # 15707-31030 will be installed when repairing earlier vehicles. RPM, confirmed by Xairmech, states that the upper banjo gaskets P/N is 90430-16012, 2 are required . The lower one piece gasket P/N is 90430-16016. RUV4 in post #317 pointed out that you can use a second one piece lower gasket (PN 90430-16016) on top instead of the two 90430-16012 gaskets.
Page 26 Post #380 posts "Limited Service Campaign to replace the VVT-i oil hose on certain 05-06 Avalons and 06 RAV4s with one that also has a rubber section.
Page 26 Post #382 posts a link to a PDF about that campaign.
04009-33131 is the kit to replace the rubber section with a better rubber section. It includes the improved rubber section and new clips. It appeared in the 2006 Limited Service Campaign document, a link to which was posted to the big thread in post 382 and post 388 quoted that number and the other text from the document. https://www.rav4world.com/forums/view...0014&start=381
The document also had information to apply for reimbursement for those who " have previously paid for the replacement of this VVT-i oil hose for this specific condition".
